The areas of concern that NOIE think we have to sort out before we're
going to get community/industry consensus on .au governance are:

1. Stake holders -consensus should be broadly based and inclusive not
   only of key individuals but also of interest groups from both the supply
   and demand sides of the industry;
 
2. Objectives - should be clearly defined and achievable;
 
3. Principles - should be identified and include the promotion of
   competition, fair trading and consumer protection;
 
4. Processes for the development of policy, standards, codes, etc should
   be inclusive, transparent and accountable; 
 
5. Complaints and dispute resolution mechanisms - consideration needs to
   be given to the requirement to establish an administrative disputes
   resolution process;
 
6. Compliance and enforcement mechanisms - Consideration should be given
   to the mechanisms and powers required to achieve an effective self
   regulatory regime;
 
7. Funding and resources - resource requirements and funding options need
   to be identified and a self sustaining funding model put in place;
 
8. Legislative framework - an assessment needs to be made of the
   requirement for a legislative structure to support an effective self
   regulatory regime.

If we can't figure out how to deal with *all* of these, not just the
few that we usually focus on, then we won't get anywhere.  For
instance, it's clear that one of ADNA's major problems has been 4 -
(lack of) inclusive, transparent and accountable processes... yet other
than complain about their behaviour we haven't suggested mechanisms
that would lead to better processes (and from what I wrote yesterday,
the Nominet setup seems to be attracting similar criticism).

Number 7, Funding, is also a very difficult one - it might be fine when
it's all up and running but it's going to need substantial seed money
and there's almost zero probability of getting it from the government
-- it *has* to come from "the industry"...
